Waltham Forest Palestine Solidarity Campaign (WFPSC) invites everyone interested in learning more about this growing, non-violent campaign to achieve justice for the Palestinian people to hear Jewish representatives of major BDS organisations in Britain and France speaking about their work, in Leytonstone on Wednesday April 20.
Jean-Guy Greilsamer of BDS France was until recently co-president of the French Jewish Peace Union. He will speak about the boycott campaign in France where draconian government measures have led to activists being arrested for wearing pro-BDS T-shirts.
Mike Cushman, activities organiser of Jews for Boycotting Israeli Goods (J-Big) and a prominent member of the British Committee for the Universities of Palestine (BRICUP) will report on an academic delegation to Palestine last year which uncovered gross discrimination against Palestinian students and lecturers.
The meeting will be chaired by Naomi Wimborne-Idrissi, secretary of J-BIG and a member of the organising collective of Artists for Palestine UK. APUK has enlisted support from more than 1,100 writers, filmmakers, musicians, playwrights, actors and other artists for the cultural boycott of Israel.
